We got married ago! (Look wrong?)


Elaine Foss and David Fitzpatrick are getting married!Elaine Foss and David Fitzpatrick are married!

The wedding took place as planned on August 21, 2005, at the Ramada Inn in Bangor, Maine. The ceremony went off without a hitch* and the reception was fun for all!

Pictures and details to come soon!!!

* Well, that isn't true! We got hitched, after all! If it went off without a hitch, then the wedding wouldn't have happened!


We put up this Web site to keep our family and friends informed of what's going on! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check in occasionally.

If you're planning to be at the wedding, please email David at or Elaine at (but remove the "-QQQ" part before you send your email! Click here to learn why) and let us know your email address, so we can contact you via email with information.

Invitations status. We sent out a "save the date" email in late April. Most of the invitations went out on Monday 6 June 2005. The last batch went out on Monday 13 June 2005.

Need a Hotel? A lot of folks have asked us about that, so check out our Hotels page for information on the special rate you can get at the Ramada Inn (where the wedding and reception will be held) by telling them you're attending the Foss-Fitzpatrick wedding. We also list other nearby hotels.

New Addition! If you don't know both of us, check out our Pre-Wedding "Elaine & David Photo Album" which features pictures of Elaine, David, and both of us together! (Even if you do know both of us, it might be worth a look.)

Things You Should Know

There's a lot on this site, especially the section on Wedding Traditions - all about them, and how we'll be addressing them at our wedding. But there are a few points we'd like all our guests to check out:

  1. Gifts: We do not need wedding gifts, because we have everything we need. If you insist on a gift, you are welcome to give a monetary gift or a donation in our names. Read here for more information...
  2. Children: We request that children under 12 not attend the wedding. We're not mean people, really! Read our reasons why...
